Mobility as a Service
With so many public and private transportation services to choose from, it can be difficult for travelers to evaluate options. Solutions are needed to enable travelers to plan and pay for trips across multiple modes in a way that meets their levels of comfort, affordability,and accessibility.
Freight & Logistics
Rising demand for goods, fueled by e-commerce, will increase commercial traffic and its impacts upon our infrastructure. Solutions are needed to support the movement of goods in urban, long-haul, and border crossing environments.
Real Time Traveler Information
Historic data is no longer sufficient for public safety officials, traffic operators, and travelers who need to make informed decisions in real-time. Predictive solutions are needed to anticipate disruption, impacts on congestion patterns, and support incident management.
Current Project Champions
Team Austin would like to install a smart intersection hardware, including cameras pavement sensors, and other connectivetechnology, to explore the possibilities of V2I connectivity. The system will be used to optimize bus routes and increase bike & pedestrian safety on the corridor.
Team Dallas-Fort Worth would like to develop platforms to test Waze and Metropia integration that a) will help inform the public b) gather data to help pin point roadway operations concerns and c) improve traffic signal data.
Team El Paso would like to develop, test and implement a smart phone app to collect and display data to assist in improving safety, provide automatic routes to users to improve safety and utilize the network more efficiently.
Team San Antonio would like to use the sensors and cameras installed along Military Drive and Blanco Road to improve commute times along those corridors. They would like to measure baseline traffic in those areas, and then publish that data in real time to change driver behaviors. Secondary outcomes include reduced crashes, lower pollution, and increased safety.
